TIPS FOR A FASTER SEARCH
- Do not use suffixes when searching. Abbreviations such as St for Street, Dr for Drive, Ln for Lane, Ave for Avenue, Rd for Road, and Cv for Cove may affect your search results.
- If you are unable to find a property, broaden your search criteria by entering fewer words. Try entering only the first word of a street name.
- If you do not know the street number of a property, enter only the street name in your search. If you know the block number, enter “%” to bring up multiple addresses. For example, entering “100%” will bring up all addresses on a street that begin with 100 (1000, 1001, 1006, etc.). You can also use this system for street names. For example, entering “Pine%” will bring up Pineland and Pinewood in the results.
- Some street names should be entered differently than the format used for most properties. Use the search terms below for better results:
|If searching for…||Enter as…|
|Mopac Expressway N||Mo-Pac Expressway|
|FM 969||F M Rd 969|
|Highway 183||U S Hy 183|
|Highway 290 E||U S Hy 290|
|IH35 N||Interstate Hy 35|
|15 St E||15|
|Highway 71 East||State Hy 71 E|

- Each property in a county must have a single appraised value. This is guaranteed by the use of the county appraisal districts.
- All property is taxable unless federal or state law exempts it from the tax.
- Property owners have a right to reasonable notice of increases in their appraised property value.
